Hi crafty friends and happy Friday! Rita here today with a new project using the beautiful Sedona Kit which is available in the Clique International Shop right now. The Kit contains e.g. all 6 beautiful 12x12 double sided cardstocks from Prima Marketing's new Golden Desert collection- many with gorgeous copper foil accents. And of course both of the ephemera packs. You really have to check out this beautifully curated Kit! It's so pretty! - My project was inspired by a picture I saw on Pinterest. I not only fell in love with the colors but also with the overall look. I really love vision boards and the "My Peaceful Place" paper from the Golden Desert reminded me also of one, so I kind of went with this idea without overthinking it too much.
I especially love the Ephemera packs in the Sedona Kit and when I saw them I instantly wanted to use them together. I chose similar colored pieces and arranged them on my pages. I was surprised how quick and easy it all came together. I just went with the flow and made sure to like the end result. I also included a quote I found on Pinterest I liked and some stamping and journaling.
Here's the left page. I used the Storyline Chapters Notebook by Heidi Swapp which you can find in the Clique International Shop as well. This year I wanted to work mostly in this format and I really love it so far. It has enough space to include papers and embellishments (the size is 8x10" btw), and it's also handy and not too big for me. So I'm really happy with it! :-)
Aren't these ephemera pieces just gorgeous? I really love the Boho-vibes. So pretty! And perfect not only for layouts but journals and notebook spreads, as you can see.
Here's the right page. I included a piece of patterned paper from the same kit. The pattern reminds me of a morrocan berber rug - also very boho-like! I love it!
I'm really happy how this spread turned out. It's really one of my faves for sure. The colors and die cuts are totally my cup of tea. I hope you feel inspired to make a vision board of your own. It's so much fun and you can include everything you want, because it's always super personal, reflecting your taste and thoughts. You can never go wrong, so give it a try!

Hi friends! Dana here today sharing how I altered a Mintopia Rainbow Shaker Album. I used the Clique Chromatics Anuenue Kit, the Clique Chromatics Unicorn Kit, and some whimsical embellishments from past kits. Anuenue means "rainbow" in Hawaiian and is a common theme in many Clique kits. This album was absolutely perfect for documenting my daughter's 7th birthday party which took place back in 2015. Waiting to use those photos definitely paid off!
I used a colorful mix of dye inks to add color to the top rainbow die-cut that fits onto the cover of the album. Once the ink was blended to my linking, I applied a layer of clear ultra fine glitter paint for a sparkly finish. Finally, to add texture to the cover, I spread on a layer of Bad Girls Couture Haute Mess Glass Bead Gel, which is part of the Capsule Wardrobe Acrylic Mixed Media Kit.
I painted the face of the front cover with Bad Girls Couture Haute Mess Fallen Angel Acrylic Paint. I used a silver paint pen to outline the inner and outer edges of the wood rainbow that sits on the cover of the album. Once the paint was dry, I glued the wood rainbow to the white base and filled the space with sequins and gems. Next, I glued the solid acrylic rainbow over the sequins, sealing them in to the cover, and then glued the rainbow die-cut on top of that. The top left corner of this photo shows what the album looks like before altering.
I used the back cover as a template for the album pages, which I cut from Waffleflower cardstock. The cardstock is single-sided, so I cut two colors each of pink, orange, yellow, green, blue, and purple patterned papers. Before I adhered the colored pages together, I added a small washi tape tab between each set of pages to help turn the pages. This was also a fun way to add another rainbow to the album.
Once the pages were secured inside the album it was time to embellish! I used a combination of Bella Blvd Squeeze The Day ephemera and enamel shapes from a past kit and Pretty Little Studio Color Me Happy Die-Cuts and Stickers. (The Pretty Little Studio Kit is part of the Retiring Kits Sale, so you can pick it up for a great price while supplies last!) I made a quick pocket on the front inside cover using a die-cut. Simply apply adhesive to the bottom and lower edges of the die-cut and leave the top unattached--perfect for holding journaling cards!
There is plenty of room for photos, journaling, and embellishments in this album! Stop by the Clique International Instagram Account for a video flip though of this album.

The stunning patterned paper that is the background of the finished album photo at the top of this post is from the Limited Edition Bliss Bad Girls Couture and Clique International Collaboration Kit. I used every other piece of paper from that kit and thought that this design was just too beautiful to cut.
Hello my crafty friends!
Nicole here and today I'm sharing my latest entry in the new Storyline Chapters kit from Clique International and the new gorgeous Catherine Pooler inks!
I have dedicated 2021 as the year of "me" and prioritizing myself and today, I'm reflecting on my five best qualities in my latest spread! I'm also taking on the "on repeat" challenge, too! Here's a look at my completed layout:
When I started this page, like most projects, I typically start with my product and story first, then fill in the photos as I go. For my "On Repeat" topic today, I loved these beautiful tags and paper clips and I also loved the stamp set that comes in the Storyline kit. I used all of those elements together and repeated them to keep my spread cohesive. Changing up colors while keeping different elements the same adds variety to the simplicity of the layout. If I get in a creative block, I tend to use these tips to get myself back on track. It takes the guesswork out of it!
I love the variety that this Heidi Swapp stamp has to offer!
The lines on my tags were stamped using the lined stamp from the set, but if turned it upside down and double stamped! Don't be afraid to make your products work for you!
Lastly, to keep that cohesiveness, add these repeating elements to your opposite page to pull everything together! Here, I didn't use the rainbow anywhere else on my spread, but the colors and the heart stamps I did! This helps keep the eye moving around the pages.
Thanks so much for stopping by today! I hope you've had fun and got inspired!
Be sure to join us in our Facebook group where we host monthly challenges and giveaways! New events coming soon and we hope you join in on the fun! See you there!
Good morning! Nicole here with a fun layout I created using the Phoenix Add-on Kit that's available in the shop!! Loving all of the "Quarantined" stickers in this kit. They are perfect for documenting Quarantined life...
This month, we have a fun sketch for you! Turn it side ways or upside down...any direction you want and see what you come up with! There are so many possibilities with this sketch! Most importantly, just have fun with it!
One of my favorite things to do is play with patterned paper and stickers... They are great for fussy cutting, layering and adding interest to any project. I used a few foam squares here and there to pop the stickers up off the page for added dimension.
To add a bit of color to my journaling card, I used alcohol markers. I love how it looks!! I drew the exact same colors from the rainbow journaling card. :)
I cut a piece of ribbon to tie through the die cut tag to make the tag pop. Then I used a pen to add some journaling. And, I couldn't help myself... I had to find a way to include the toilet paper roll!! Seriously, it's so great!
To complete the layout, I scattered a variety of stickers and die cuts across the bottom of the layout. I had so much fun with this...There are lots of cute elements in this adorable kit! Don't miss out... grab it today.
Thank you so much for visiting today! Grab your kit today and start sharing your "Quarantined" stories in our FaceBook Group!
Here is Karlla Dauer and I'm very happy to start the week
sharing this layout with you.
When I stopped to think about this project,
I honestly didn't get inspired by anyone, music or layout.
I let the moment guide me.
Creating a layout leads me to many memories, and it was at that moment
that I took my biggest inspiration ... my son.
For this layout I used
Paper Pack | Heidi Swapp Old School
Foam thickers florals from Maggie Holmes
Paper Lavender Ln. | Jen Hadfield The Avenue
I mixed media in the background with a light pink ink pad and stamped several small images.
you can find many stamp options on Clique Kits website
I made a mix with several tags and some decorated with stamps and others with stickers.
I liked the final result of all of them together.
I made two large frames of paper and sewed them. I put them under the photo.
I put all the elements of highlights in 3D.
I love the effect it provides.
I hope you have inspired and liked the layout.
Don't forget to check out the new kits on the Clique Kits website.
Impossible not to fall in love.
See you next time =)
Hello Clique International friends and happy weekend!
Giorgia here today to share a new project with you: do you like to document using traveler notebooks?
This is a new format for me, I never before used it, but when I saw the beautiful So Romantic Travelers Notebook by Studio Forty bundle I immediately fell in love with its patterns because I had just the perfect pictures for them: some time ago we took a professional photo shooting and the sweet pictures just waited for this to be scrapped!
First of all I removed some of the inside pages because I didn't have enough pictures to fit all the notebook pages, then I decorated the cover.
To close the notebook I created a removable closing with an elastic thread that I decorated with a button, a charm from a sold out kit and a tassel.
To decorate the pages I used the papers included in the traveler notebook bundle, die cuts and puffy phrases from Kaia kit and flowers cut from Flora Book 2: this amazing booklet contains pastels and bright coloured floral elements and leaves to fussy cut. Each design has 4 pieces, so you have plenty to use!
In the right page here, I wanted to stamp a subtle background: to do that I used an Oxide ink pad, because it creates a soft, not completely defined stamped image, and this was right the effect I was looking for!
In the shop you can find Oxide trio to try this out.
In this double page I printed the text of this Italian song, that is dedicated to my daughter.
Here I used this lovely stamp to create the background, the sentiment on the picture and inside the frames in the left page.
I used these supplies from the shop:
In the shop you can find also these travelers notebook:
Ciao, a presto
Good morning everyone!
Sarah here this morning to share a quick project I made for a Don't throw me away post. I had a little box, it had makeup in it really, but I thought it was something I could use again for something, instead of just throwing it away and adding to the landfill. So I kept it. Then my daughter's B-day rolled around, I had bought her a pretty rose quartz heart necklace but didn't have anything to put it in, I saw this box and thought I would make it pretty and put the necklace in it for her.
So I started with some papers from the Limited edition kit | Little one. I love these papers! Everything is black, white and grey and you can add all the color you want to them.
I cut some papers down to fit the front, back and sides of the box and added them to it, then pulled some of my Prima art alchemy opal magic paint and added some to the seams where the paper came together. I let it dry, then added some flowers from my stash, along with some of the cute little animal stickers from the sticker sheet in the kit and the love you so much sticker. I slid the necklace into the box and I was done. She loved it by the way! And she kept the box and put it on her shelf.
I hope you enjoyed this post and I would love to see something you revamp into something else, reuse something and repurpose it so that it doesn't end up in a landfill. Make sure to tag us on Instagram and/or post it in the Clique Facebook group!!
Hello Everyone, it's Piroska here today with my latest post for Clique International. My task was to scroll on Pinterest and find something inspiring. I've been looking for all kinds of stuff and finally found a beautiful floral garland, which I immediately found great for re-making on paper.
I started with fussy cutting - have I told you lately that I love fussy cutting? It is so relaxing if you have good scissors! You can do it while watching your favourite show, or listening to a podcast. I often do it when I don't have moyo to scrap, but still want to make something at my table.
Have you seen the amazing paper pads for fussy cutting by Mintay Papers in the shop? There are different themed books, they are all 6X8" and full of elements to fussy cut. I chose the Flora Book 2, which was perfect for my floral garland. Here is my layout:
In this booklet you can find 2 different coloured floral elements (2-2 pages of pastell and bright coloured flowers) and 2 pages of leaves. Each design has 4 pieces, so you have plenty to work with ;-)
The pages are double sided, on the back they have some beautiful colours, which you can use as a scrapbook paper.
For my garland I used a twine as a base, I arranged two pieces of them as on the photo from Pinterest, and started to add my fussy-cut floral elements. I glued them with foam tape to add some dimension. I also added leaves to each bouquet.
Arranging the flowers was harder than I first thought :-P but it turned out beautifully. I decided not to mat my photo this time, to keep this layout clean and white. Finally I added a chipboard foam title from the Late Afternoon collection of Amy Tangerine, which you could find in the September Song Kit, which is already sold out.
I hope I could inspire you to make a layout with only fussy-cut elements! Show us if you did ;-)
Hello Clique International friends! Today it's Giorgia here with a new "handmade with love" idea: I always love to create something to give to my friends, especially now that we can't see us really much, hang out or have a dinner together...
It is my way to be close to them also if apart.
This time I decorated some succulents with the beautiful Sedona kit.
This kit features Prima Marketing's new Golden Desert collection and has a lot of succulents and cactus icons so it was just perfect to make this quick gift!
I bought two tiny succulents and used a pot die to create a patterned paper pot for them.
I placed the succulent inside of it, wrapping it with tissue paper.
I created a tag to go with the succulent and that's it! In just few minutes I have two lovely gifts ready to give to my friends.
I embellished the tags with die-cuts, wooden embellishments, gems and charms all from the kit.
The two pots and tags are different but similar; just changing the patterned papers and the embellishments you can make a lot of them! They can be also used as placemats or favors.
I used this kit from the shop:
Ciao, alla prossima,
Hello my Crafty Friends! It is Ali here today to share a fun layout that I created with Vicki Boutin's Story Teller line. I was able to take a trip to Italy with Vicki in 2016 and we got to visit the Da Vinci Museum in Florence, Italy. Of Course, I had to use Vicki's collection to document our trip.
I started off with two sheets of the stripe paper and to save from using another sheet I cut out the middle of one of them. I used that middle section that I cut out to make a smaller square that I distressed and matted onto black cardstock. I then used my second stripe sheet to back my title cut file from Cut To You. I lined up the square to the bottom stripe sheet and then lined up my cut file so it looks like one piece of paper was used. To give it dimension I used foam tape to mat my square and my title.
To have some fun I added some embellishments to my layout using a few stickers and some ephemera from the Story Teller line.
I fell in love with that daisy paper and had to back up the bird using the pretty paper. You can find this paper in the Clique Chromatics/Pantone Kit. The papers in there are just gorgeous. And did you know that Gia will be carrying Vicki's new Color Study Line. Make sure you grab that one right away because I am positive that will sell out quickly. Thanks for joining me today and I can't wait to see what everyone is creating this month!
